Virtual Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse 2020

For 2020 only the traditional Burghley Young Event Horse Competition went 'virtual'. Open to four and five year olds judges were looking for an athletic, loose moving horse with a promising jumping technique and attitude which, with correct training and production, will develop physically and mentally into a strong three-day event horse. The rider and the facilities were not judged, only the horses potential to make a top class three day eventer.

Horses were asked to perform a simple dressage test (30 marks available). A jumping round of 7 or 8 jumping efforts to include 3 at maximum height (1m for 5yo and 0.90m for 4yo) and a double combination (40 marks available). Finally the horse was judged on conformation and Quality (marks out of 12 for conformation and 8 for quality).

The winner is that with the highest overall marks from three sections: Dressage, Jumping and Conformation & Quality.
